ughugh after 3 questions i felt like i was in high school history again, and couldn't go on

WTF high school you go to? My high school may have taught me the answers to like 4 of those questions. I got 45 right. That test is def hard for just like high school civics or the equivalent. Like Id never read or heard anything about washington's farewell address among other things discussed. PS the economics questions were def crucial to raising my score.

You answered 51 out of 60 correctly — 85.00 %
Average score for this quiz during September: 74.4%
Average score since September 18, 2007: 74.4%

the philosophy ones killed me. The average American would score under 50% on this IMO.

Meh, not bad but I was hoping to beat the OP.

Oh, and LFS, I'm an English major, too, so you can't use that as an excuse, bro.

Got a 33, but I misclicked 4 answers somehow. I mighta gotten another 4 or so if I took more time, but definitely missed almost all the philospher questions. Man do I feel dumb. I woulda thought I woulda gotten an above average score, not such a drastically lower score than average.

I learned most of the history questions in high school during my IB history classes.

All the economics stuff I have learned in college (I'm an econ major...) And most of the constitutional law type stuff I have also learned in college through my own quest for knowledge, and through a couple of my economics classes.

I just thought the test was pretty interesting, and definitely filled with a lot of questions not normally presented on history type tests so I posted it.

I'm positive something like this is much easier for someone who's just out of high school or college. Alexis de Tocqueville just doesn't come up all that often in the real world.

55 out of 60, 91.67%. And yes, being exposed to the material within the last 4-5 years does make it easier than being in your 30's with a demanding job, a wife and kids, I really hope I have enough going on in my life then that I'll have more important things replace my worthless high school and college trivia.
